We know that travelers who arrive in Wellington by cruise ship can usually only pick one main activity for the day they’re here, so we pride ourselves on providing a well organised, professional service with high quality Electric Bikes so you can get the most from your time in Wellington.

Our guides will take the time to adjust the bike to your height and riding style and provide full instruction and safety briefing setting off. We provide helmets and have hi-vis available.  We’re a young(ish!) group of guides who are all trained in group riding and first aid certified.

This tour is mostly about getting out and riding (rather than a history tour) but we do love showing off our city and telling you some tales along the way!  The ride is a mix of shared path, on-road cycleways and regular road riding.  You don’t have to be an expert rider, but should be comfortable riding a bike. Don’t worry about the ‘electric’ part, it’s easy! If you can ride a bike, you can ride an eBike!
